I love a good statement piece, but as any mother of young kids knows a fancy necklace isn’t always the most practical wardrobe add on. Since I can’t always rock an adorable necklace, scarves have become the unsung hero of my accessory collection. While necklaces are hard for little hands and mouths to resist, causing heartache on my end when they break and on my children’s end when they scratch, scarves serve to add a pop of color or interesting texture to a look and are far more gentle on little faces and hands. My son, who is three, even refers to scarves as “snugglies” and often requests that I put one on before we settle in for a good cuddle session. Who can resist that level of adorableness?
While stores are beginning to turn over their merchandise to more spring like wares, the majority of the country is still experiencing bone chilling weather which makes this the perfect time to stock up on some scarves for next winter or to experiment with them before warmer weather is the norm. Here are a few I think are worth a look:
Since scarves come in a variety of textures, prints, and weight they pair nicely with a lot of different outfits, making them a must have accessory.
